All quotes by Jeff Flake on American politics

There may not be a place for a Republican like me in the current Republican climate or the current Republican Party. The path that I would have to travel to get the Republican nomination is a path I'm not willing to take, and that I can't in good conscience take.feedback

I have children and grandchildren to answer to, and so, Mr. President, I will not be complicit. It is clear at this moment that a traditional conservative who believes in limited government and free markets, who is devoted to free trade and who is pro-immigration, has a narrower and narrower path to nomination in the Republican Party – the party that for so long has defined itself by belief in those things. Mr. President, I rise today to say, enough.feedback

The alliances and agreements that ensure the stability of the entire world are routinely threatened by the level of thought that goes into 140 characters. Would we Republicans meekly accept such behavior on display from dominant Democrats? Of course we wouldn't. And we would be wrong if we did.feedback

It is time for our complicity and our accommodation for the unacceptable to end. There are times when we must risk our careers in favor of our principles. Now is such a time. When the next generation asks us, why didn't you do something? Why didn't you speak up? What are we going to say?feedback

There are times when we must risk our careers in favor of our principles. Leadership knows where the buck stops. Humility helps. Character counts. Leadership does not knowingly encourage or feed ugly and debased appetites in us. This spell will eventually break. That is my belief. We will return to ourselves once more, and I say the sooner the better.feedback

You simply can't go that far without affecting the debt in a negative way.feedback

Republicans need to deliver on something. I'm glad to see the president pushing hard for it and I think he's doing it the right way, approaching some of the Democrats as well, who are likely to be with us.feedback

I mean, you watch those rallies, Republican rallies, the 'Lock her up!' chants, the depictions of Hillary Clinton, the posters that are just–. It's beyond the pale.feedback

I'm the other senator from Arizona - the one that wasn't captured. If the president wants to recruit a primary opponent, that's his prerogative. He can do that. I've had issues with other Republican presidents on policy, maybe not as many. But anyway, that's what you do if you're a senator. That's what you should do.feedback

I have no doubt I can make my life, as far as reelection, a lot easier if I was just a go-along-to-get-along guy. But, you know, it's not worth it. It's not worth it to be here if you're not going to try to accomplish something. Sorry you have to put up with this. Lots of wonderful people across AZ. You'll find them. If the president wants to recruit a primary opponent, that's his prerogative. He can do that. I've had issues with other Republican presidents on policy, maybe not as many. But anyway, that's what you do if you're a senator. That's what you should do.feedback
